Rotherham United were sent out of the Championship through a late Cardiff City equaliser this afternoon although Millers Manager Paul Warne thought his team’s performance was good enough to take all three points.

The stats from the Cardiff City Stadium tell us that the hosts had sixty-two per cent of the possession, and I know I have red and white tinted specs but surely that can’t be? I would have thought at most it would have been fifty/fifty.

Success rates in the duels on the pitch today went the visitors way with Rotherham having fifty-eight per cent success, fifty-seven per cent success in aerial duels while the Bluebirds had six corners to our four.

Our passing accuracy in our opponents half came out at forty-eight per cent with our success rate in tackles saw the figure at forty-seven per cent. We gave fifteen fouls away with Cardiff giving away three less and we had two players booked to the hosts’ one.

Attack wise we had seventeen shots at goal, four on target (which has been our nemesis all season) while City had three on target from nine shots. Of our seventeen shots seven of those were outside the box.

It’s a sad ending to what was always going to be a difficult season. We’ve certainly had the highs but they were usually followed by the lows and today we came so close, so very close to having happy faces. But, it wasn’t to be.

We can all think of the ‘what only’s’ and the ‘if’s’ but I think we’ve got to take the positives from this season, which, OK, look short on the ground at this moment but if you look back you will see some.

So we start next season back in League One and although we could all have a good old moan let’s also remember that we are lucky to have a football team and, all things being equal, we will be able to see them live next season.

Up The Millers

  • Bottle 🍾 boys pure and simple ! Back to league one we go and let’s stop this pretending we can compete in the championship , we are a joke a laughing stock ,up down ,up down ,up down ,the stats show what we deserve relegation , the only good thing to come out of another failed attempt at championship stability is the fans didn’t have to tip up there cash to watch this shite unless you was mugg enough to pay to watch on streaming or whatever , major major rethink needed at the NYS players will be sold and Stewart will thump is chest about having a competitive budget as for calamity warne it’s FAILURE .

    • I don’t think we are a laughing stock Stuart. We are a club with a low budget and a Manager who knows that and I think you will find more people are sorry to see us leave the Championship than those who aren’t. Of course it’s disappointing but I doubt many Millers fans would think that most of the football was ‘shite’ this season, some I admit was but we did play some good football, I respect your point of view but I’m guessing you weren’t one of the mugs who paid to watch the games, so you probably won’t have seen of our good play. It is a shame we won’t be keeping our better players but that’s football isn’t it, players come, players go and we will have new heroes next season.
